So-and-so Small Diaphragm Condenser

  • Summary: If you're stuck with this thing, mix it with a slower, warmer dynamic microphone on drums. Otherwise get something better.
  • Pros: Sounds good when used in pair with a cheap dynamic.
  • Cons: Cold, hollow, clinical, dull sound. Too expensive.

Good for guitar; durability questionable.

  • Summary: I bought this microphone for usage in my home music recordings. The mic works very well in its recordings of acoustic guitars, and was even surprisingly good for vocals to an extent. Having said that, I did encounter a problem with a certain high-frequency hum being emitted from the mic after several usages. This hum was alleviated with the -10dB pad, but is a pesky and noticeable presence without the pad.

  • Summary: This is a really good sounding mic for the price! I am planning to use it as a hi hat mic, but it sounds real good on acoustic guitar and other items I can try out!

Very good sound and versatility for the price.

  • Summary: Bought this along with another AKG 170 to mic strings, voice, and piano. I've been happy with the results. AKG doesn't claim that it is a vocal mic, but it does pretty well anyway. Nice clear sound, especially for strings, and two together work great on piano!

"Great overhead mic."

By a customer from gmail.com, zzounds.com

  • Excerpt: I own 3 of these and use them for overhead and hi-hat mics. The built in pad is a nice feature. I have also used them to record a trumpet and have had great results.
